Systems Biology, Volume 6, (PDF) features comprehensive coverage of several aspects of systems biology, resulting in an excellent overview of the computational and experimental approaches presently in use to study biological systems.
Each chapter represents a valuable introduction to one specific branch of systems biology, while also including the current state of the art and pointers to future directions. Following different methods for the integrative analysis of omics data, the ebook goes on to describe techniques that allow for the direct quantification of carbon fluxes in big metabolic networks, including the use of 13C labelled substrates and genome-scale metabolic models. The latter is explained on the basis of the model organism Escherichia coli as well as the human metabolism. Subsequently, the authors deal with the application of such techniques to human health and cell factory engineering, with an emphasis on recent progress in building genome-scale models and regulatory networks. They stress the importance of such information for specific biological processes, including the ageing of cells, the immune system, and organogenesis. The ebook concludes with an outline of recent advances in genome editing, which have allowed for brief genetic modifications, even with the dynamic control of gene expression.
